Re: UK Roku Availability and current model query

The Roku Express and Roku Streaming Stick+ do not have an earphone jack on the remote. However, all current Roku products support private listening, voice search, etc. via the Roku mobile app (free application for iOS and Android devices).  Private listening allows you to listen to the audio from st...

Re: UK Roku Availability and current model query

So my first question is, why is the Roku 3 not listed as a product on the official Roku site? My second question is where can I purchase the Roku 3 in the UK as I can't locate it anywhere...? Thanks for any guidance on this. Roku 3 (2014/15) was discontinued several years ago so it isn't listed as ...

Re: New Roku Hardware Announced. 4K/HDR Stick - Roku OS8

Can anyone independently confirm the Wiki information about the 2017 Ultra (model 4660)?  Is it true that the channel storage has been REDUCED from 1 GB to 512 MB compared to the 2016 Ultra (model 4640)?  Why would Roku do this? If so, since the CPU seems unchanged, the RAM seems unchanged, and the...

Re: Roku with Built-In OTA

I could see this type of box being a must have solution if/when a ATSC 3.0 version is released and ATSC 3.0 broadcasts are available in a year or so.  ATSC 3.0 has support for 4K resolution, HDR, high frame rate, wide color gamut, and 3D.

Re: Roku XD terrible performance

I guess it depends on your expectations.  I don't mind upgrading streaming devices every few years to have better performance and features.  I look at it like a cell phone, I have some old cell phones that I keep for emergencies but I don't use them.  This is why I'm not a fan of smart TV's.  Spendi...

Re: Roku Premiere Plus - TV Resolution Issue

My TV is an LG 47LH30. According to manual, it's HDTV formats include 1080i and 720p resolutions. So, it looks like the LG and Roku are not compatible at 1080. Unfortunately, I only have one TV in household, thus cannot try getting to menu to change resolution  to 720.  Not sure what to do, other t...

Re: Ultra 4660X problems

Okay, I'm still having this issue.  I thought it may have cleared up but it happened twice today requiring pulling the power cord.
Anyone else having issues with Ultra 4660?

Re: problems with CBS all access app

Question is, will the Older Hardware be able to run the new firmware? I have a feeling that, at least Roku 2 and Roku 3 are about to be at End of Life, and I'm not really happy about htat. From Roku® OS 8 Release Notes: Roku OS 8 will begin rolling out to Roku players in early October, and on Roku ...

Re: problems with CBS all access app

For what it may be worth...  I have an annual commercial-free All Access plan.  My 2017 Ultra is wired and my 2017 Roku Stick is connected wireless.  Neither of them have any issues with CBS all access.  I don't know, maybe when they roll out 8.0 firmware to older Roku's that may resolve the issue.

Re: before I buy... watch from start of season? which Roku?

I'd like to get rid of comcast but I'd also like to watch the current seasons of the shows I follow when I have time to do so. There are so many variables it is not possible to answer your question.  Your location plays a major factor and the streaming options keep evolving.  If you want to watch &...

Try changing the Roku audio mode settings to Stereo.
